there's nothing wrong with funny ghetto movies in general, but when the majority of films with black casts conform to that, there is something wrong. some of us would like to see serious, thought-provoking and (dirty word) artistic material, instead of just lowest common denominator comedies that just revolve around stereotypical situations and characters. i don't get it an insult that his movies open in independent theatres as opposed to in major theatres? i would rather watch a boatload of 'shehateme' or 'bamboozled' over another fucking madea movie. spike lee's filmography pretty much shits on every other black director's filmography from about two miles up (most directors in general to be honest), so i'll roll with him over tyler perry lol
